Shell Game

Ah, just give us your walletOkay, that’s surprising — I’d have picked “Shooter” to win the box office this week, but nope: The top spot goes to “TMNT”, with a $25.45 million take. I guess there was something to my weekend Sympatico/MSN piece about Eighties nostalgia, after all.

Other interesting news: “300” continues to be a monster, grossing some $20 million in its third weekend to come in at number two, and audiences would rather watch a crappy horror movie than see Adam Sandler find his smile again. Not really sure whether anybody wins on that one, though.

One thought on “Shell Game”

  1. I’m not surprised. I paid for 5 frakkin tickets to TMNT because my wife and 3 kids really needed to get out of the house on a rainy Saturday. I have to say that I wish we had seen “300” instead. The plots are similar (small group of warriors must do battle against superior number of enemies), and I’d gladly trade turtles and rats for blood and boobies. The kids need to grow up a little more before I take them to gladiator porn though…
